Girum Hospital Review and Costs

In the 16th century, Ethiopia adopted modern medicine, and after that, the country got its first step toward the medicine and health industry. Swedish Medical Staff and Western Countries introduced Western medicine in 1886, and invest in resources in Ethiopia. The first hospital was been built in 1909 by the Russian Red Cross in Addis Ababa ( Acc. to the Milbank Memorial Fund Quarterly by E. Torrey in 1967 article). It is not a smooth process to establish hospitals and clinics in Ethiopia due to various incidents, one such incident is the Italian-Ethiopian war (1936-1941) which slows down the progress of the health system in Ethiopia.

After that one big incident, Ethiopia gradually grows, and in 1946 Public Health Hospitals are also opened for free treatment. In 1954 with the help of UNICEF, USAID, and WHO the Gondar Public health College and Training Center was been opened. To improve the training of health officers, nurses, and staff at the health centers. In 1965, the first faculty of medicine was been opened at the University of Addis Ababa. In Addis Ababa, there are many private hospitals with great infrastructure. Girum Hospital is one of those hospitals. So let’s get into more details about Girum Hospital Review and Costs, treatment, services, etc.
